The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A9 powered speaker makes a dramatic addition to your room’s décor — and fills it with magnificently spacious sound. This stylish speaker also lets you enjoy music from just about any source. The A9 has built-in Bluetooth, plus several kinds of Wi-Fi streaming, including Spotify® Connect, Apple® AirPlay®, Chromecast built-in, and DLNA. And the A9 can be part of a Beoplay multi-room audio system for even more listening options.
The Beoplay A9’s five built-in speakers produce a clean, balanced sound. A pair of 3/4″ tweeters deliver clean, clear highs, with two 3″ full-range drivers for detailed midrange. An 8″ woofer effectively fills out the bass frequencies. Class D amplifiers ensure accurate sound reproduction.
Built-in Bluetooth 4.0 lets you stream high-quality sound from your smartphone or tablet. Built-in Wi-Fi® connects the Beoplay A9 to your home network and the internet.
Own an iPhone®, iPad®, Apple Watch® or Mac®? The A9 has built-in Apple AirPlay®. You can even use your Apple Watch to control the system.
Prefer your Android™ smartphone, tablet, or PC? Use DLNA for advanced streaming options. And the speaker has Spotify Connect built-in for use with both Apple and Android devices.
Versatile multi-room audio
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay gear uses Chromecast built-in to create a multi-room wireless audio network. Download the free Beoplay control app from either the Apple App Store or Google Play to start. The app lets you remotely control your A9, as well other Beoplay speakers in your home.
The app has Deezer built in for additional music choices, plus TuneIn so you can enjoy internet radio stations from around the world. You can have all your Beoplay speakers play the same song throughout your home, or have each speaker play a different song from a different source — or any combination in between.
The Beoplay A9 speaker system rests on three sturdy solid wood legs. Remove them, and you can mount your A9 on the wall. It’s almost like hanging art. The custom-designed fabric has a rich, luxurious appearance that can make it a focal point for your room. The speaker’s exterior has touch-sensitive controls — simply tap it to turn it on.
Roon-compatible for serious music lovers
The Beoplay A9 is also compatible with Roon, a subscription digital music player you download to your smartphone, tablet, or computer. It gives you multi-room audio playback for all your Chromecast-compatible devices and more. Roon accesses your digital music collection from your iTunes library or NAS drive. It also works with your TIDAL subscription. Roon lets you do deep dives into your music, showing artist bios, photos, reviews, and lyrics. Roon can also suggest other artists and songs based on your selections, making it easy to discover new music you’ll enjoy.
